Patti LaBelle - You Are My Friend Lyrics




You are my friend,
I never knew it 'til then
My friend, my friend

You hold my hand,
You might not say a word
But I see your tears when I show my pain

You're my, my friend
I never knew it 'til then
My friend
I feel your love,
When you're not near
It helps me make it knowing you care

The thought of you helps me carryon
When I feel all hope is gone
I see the world wit brand new eyes
Your love has made me realize
My future looks bright to me,
Oh because you are my friend
Da, da, da, da [ad lib]

I've been looking around and you were here all the time.
Da, da, da [ad lib]
I've been around and around and around and around
Da, da, da
I've been looking around and you were here all the time
[Repeat]

    She wrote this when I believe she lost her mom. She is so real. A loving kind hearted lady. I'm so blessed to have met her. I met Ms. Patti about 14 yes. ago, I was at a church revival for a church in Detroit. We were visiting from a little town called Chatham in Ontario Canada. The pastor grew up with her. She was in Detroit doing a book signing and came after to worship. I met her after service. I cried like a little baby. She just hugged me and told me she loved me. Humble as can be.

    If you get the book don't block the blessing you will get the correct answer who actually wrote this song it is a good read Patti LaBelle's book I don't feel like going through all of that to explain something lol
